When the leaves change colours and the weather starts to become a bit chilly, many people think that’s the time put away the outside furniture and prepare to bundle up and stay snug throughout winter inside of their home. These are the people who are missing out on the best time to turn their outdoor space into a winter wonderland filled with everything they can imagine. Fall is the best time of the year to build a deck after all and here are six reasons why:
1. Access to the best contractors
During the Fall season, you can take advantage of the “off-season” that occurs when many construction crews aren’t receiving that many jobs which leaves their schedule more open, making them available to complete projects faster than in the Spring or Summer.
2. Better impact on your landscape
During the Spring or Summer season, the weather can range from hot, sweltering days to stormy, rainy days with very little warning. During the Fall season, the weather is a lot more bearable and the cooler weather dries out the landscape making it easy to build a deck on the yard without causing any significant damage to your property so that when Spring rolls around your yard will bounce back greener than ever!
3. Get ahead of the crowd
Beat the rush by beginning your deck construction early so that by the time Spring arrives you will be enjoying your new deck without having to worry about how hot it is when you’re trying to stain it or having a construction crew have to cancel a day due to bad weather.
4. Take advantage of predictable weather
Weather during the Fall season is a lot more predictable than weather during the Spring or Summer months. There are a lot less issues like thunderstorms that could cause a delay in construction which makes it easier for the construction crew you hire to get the job done within a short amount of time.
5. Save money
Most construction crews are available year-round even though the demand for construction diminishes during the Fall and Winter seasons. Usually, during this time many crews offer off-season pricing which is lower than the prices they normally charge in the Spring and Summer months. This allows you to save money that you can use for other things like a higher quality deck material that can add style to your backyard while also supporting it.
6. Save time
If you are planning on using your deck during the Summer (who isn’t?), the best time to start building it is not March or April because it could be a while before it is actually finished and you could end up missing out on the ideal moments during the Summer to use your deck.
When deciding to plan and install a new deck, there are many factors to take into consideration. Choosing the best season to build your deck will not only save you money but will also make it so that you can actually enjoy your new deck by the time Summer arrives. When it comes to building a deck, the sooner you build it, the better so that instead of having to stay indoors and watch your deck get built on a beautiful sunny day, you will actually be able to enjoy all the benefits of your deck before Summer.
